Galveston also has a huge Mardi Gras festival every year at the same time that New Orleans does. My uncle lives in Galveston and goes every year, and I assure you, if his "b**bs for beads" photo album is any indicator, it is just as sin soaked at the one in th New Orleans.
What are the chances that two hurricanes would plow into these two areas within weeks of each other? And right into two places that have crazy Mardi Gras celebrations every year?
Okay, it is probably a huge coincidence, but my jaw did drop when my husband pointed that out to me!
